You're Smokin'

As it's pouring with rain outside and the leaves are falling off the trees it's time to think back to summer and all the lovely BBQs we had. This year, in addition to the regular burgers and sausages we tried some new things, including BBQ pizza which was a big success. It was particularly fun to do when my BFF and her other half were visiting as everyone had something to do - one person rolled out the dough, another one did the actual BBQing and then everyone got to pick their favourite toppings to go on their own pizza. We perfected a technique that seemed to work for us. BBQ the pizza crust on one side, flip so that the cooked side is up, put tomato sauce and toppings on this side and then place back in the BBQ for a few minutes to cook from the bottom and get some melty gooey cheese. Definitely going on the list of things to BBQ next year as well!

Inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches I decided to make a card for the BBQ master of our house aka the Culinary Consultant. He has patiently been turning those sausages all summer long. I coloured the images using Copics in colours to match the background paper. I'm also linking up with the Stamp It theme over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and Just Add Ink where the challenge is Just Add "P" (P for plaid or patterned paper).

Card: 300 gsm hammered white card, 160 gsm Hobbycraft white card, scrap of orange card
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Let's BBQ and matching dies
Ink: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black and Copics
Other: Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall paper, Stitched Rectangles and Everyday Sentiment Banner dies
